#103 Tip-In Project – “Lighthouses”

Psalm 27:1, ESV, NIV
The Lord is my light and my salvation— 
whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalms 43:3 NIV
Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.


Matthew 5:14
 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.


THOUGHTS: Lighthouses are unique buildings that have one purpose… to protect people from hitting ground/rocks off the shore of oceans.

CALL TO ACTION: As you work on this week’s Tip-In Project, please consider what lighthouses represent in your life?

Remember Tip-Ins Tips from 2017:

You can free-hand this image and write the bible verse around it. OR you can print the free download printable and use that paper as your tip-in. OR you can print it out, and then use the “Graphite Method” (see website for instructions at >> http://wp.me/p7I46G-gI ) to transfer image directly onto your bible paper

Why use Tip-Ins? Answer: To add additional space for drawing/writing in your bible. Perhaps you don’t have a “journaling” bible, this is a way to add a drawing without actually drawing on the words of the bible paper. Perhaps you have already journaled on that page, or your illustrated bible already has a picture on that page that you want to use, you can just add a tip-in on top of that. 

Tip ins can be of any type of paper, vellum, card, photo, etc. that you want to add into your Bible. I, myself, have used sketch paper; tracing paper; copy paper; and, illustrated print offs. When using these, I often use 1.5″ x 7″ cut paper for the margin of my journaling bible, or 3″ x 5″ to go across the bible page. However, according to the size of your Bible, you can adapt your tip in to your desired size.

Also, there are several ways to adhere tip ins into the Bible… you can use Washi tape, adhesive or Elmer’s glue, to name a few.
